I am now using Asus Xonar Essence STX. I want to find a sound card which is higher grade than my current Xonar STX. I just using the RCA analog output to my amp and my Hi-Fi Speaker. Of course, I just for music (esp classical one) and not for gaming. No matter the price. Would anyone advise me? Thank you in advance.
I want to find a sound card with analog output higher grade than Xonar Essence STX, pls advise.
no, the stx is very good so far. I'm very satisfied with this card. Just I want to install a new PC for my father including a sound card. So I am considering whether I should shift it to him, then I can replace it with a superior one. Just cos I am greed. But it does give me an excuse to find if there is a superior one :P
I actually don't know much about the use of Essence Muses, as there are different inputs & outputs...
But I just use for music listening, but not editing. Another question is what can I connect from the SPID digital output and whether its quality will be better than analoge RCA output for I have amp & speakers.
If your like me and listen to music mostly through a computer then the asus essence one muses edition would be an awesome upgrade, Use the s/pdif out on the stx as a pass-through to the dac/amp to your main amp then your speakers very easy.
